Veeze is coming off the heels of a career-minting year following the release of his long-awaited album Ganger this past June. The album marked Veeze's first entry in the Billboard Top 200 Chart, as well as debuting #1 on Heatseekers & Independent Album charts. The LP earned widespread praise from the likes of The New York Times, NPR, Pitchfork, The Washington Post, The FADER, Rolling Stone & others. Building on the momentum of the release, Veeze is kicking off his 22-date U.S. solo tour, The Ganger Tour, in October with sold-out dates already in Detroit, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia.
